Awesome

We stopped at this quaint place on Rt1 on or drive west along the CT coast. We sat outside with no wait on a Wednesday evening. Food took a long time to come but only because we were unlucky to sit down after 2 very large parties. We notice that food came much quickly for other patrons who came... read more

Had a terrible experience at the water's edge restaurant, and walked out. We had to find something open for dinner and went to Haywire. Get the eggplant fries! They're delicious! Had ours with Ranch dressing, really good! Waitress was genuine, made good suggestions, and got us more fun Narragansett coasters with puzzles on them that we were having fun trying... More

Burgers were good. You can sit inside or out. Staff was friendly. Prices were good. If your not looking for a burger, try somewhere else.

Locals recommended Haywire to me and a few friends as one of their first choices for lunch. We loved the casual atmosphere, and the very pleasant manner in which we were greeted and seated. Our server was prompt, courteous and helpful with answers to our questions. Our burgers were huge, especially the "Sunrise", and delicious, as was the salad. Having... More

Had lunch here with my brother for my birthday. Have been here many times, but never written a review. The options for burgers are great, as is the beer selection. The fired pickles are also very good. Good size portions and the burgers are taste. It is nice having a good burger joint on the shoreline.

Was looking for a place to grab a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. Our meals were great! Big burgers and entree salad was filling. Excellent service too. Worth stopping in.

I've been here twice and liked it both times. Burgers are decent size and always taste excellent. The choices for burgers are amazing and lots to choose from- including vegetarian and GF options. It's ALWAYS crowded so you may have to wait a bit to be seated and prices are a little high, but it's definitely worth it!

The food is very good ! They have outside seating. This place is always packed; doesn't matter what time of year. Get there early; especially on a weekend !
